Wonder what their optical engineering staff numbers are like these days. Have wondered the same thing about optical engineers that work on Pentax designs at Ricoh.

I thought the 50 Opera situation was kind of smart; Ricoh still sells lenses even though they're not going to Pentax owners. At the same time, too much of this would be bad, as folks wouldn't buy Pentax cameras to get access to Pentax glass.

To me at least, Tokina seems to get very little interest vs. Tamron, Sigma, and all of the glass that Cosina sells with some other name on the box.
